It's Big Boss. Not young snake. How dare you make a mistake!!! HOW DARE YOU!!!

Posted by Young_Scott

@N7: I'm guessing the best thing would be to call him "Naked Snake" in this trailer, to completely avoid spoilers.

I wonder if this will allow co-op between the PS3 and PSP versions of the game. That would be really cool if it did (but I doubt it will). I doubt it will though.

Wish I had bought this version instead of the unplayable PSP version. Never has there been a game that highlighted the need for more buttons (or a more streamlined UI) and a second stick.

Sucks because it's a pretty dang good MGS game, too.

Well he still kind of is Snake. Sort of. At least he spent a majority of a game being called Snake.

Posted by Young_Scott

On the subject AndrewB brought up, I wonder if I should wait for this to hit before I start Peace Walker. I've had a sealed copy for ages (I've been super busy and haven't really had time to use my PSP), but this is getting close to release. At the same time though, I'm a huge MGS nut and don't know how much longer I can hold out; I'm the kind of crazy person who loves to put the series chronology together and look at how everything happened. Hell, I beat the MSX versions of Metal Gear 1 and 2. ;)

Why no English version? I'm worried now :(

Yep, though in this particular scene he IS fully clothed.

I assume this is going to be in english, though japanese with english sub-titles would be amusing. Better be localized though, because I have been looking forward to it.

It's a part of the HD collection coming out in NA on November 8th (according to this site). If I recall correctly, the HD collection in Japan doesn't have Peace Walker HD, just a voucher for MGS1 on the PSN. So I guess they're releasing it separately.

To be honest, I'd prefer MGS1 over this, but I'll give it a shot when I get the collection.

He's been called Big Boss since the 80's. Pretty sure that spoiler is long since retired.

Posted by AuthenticM

I still CANNOT believe that they did not flip the HUD to a horizontal position.

Edited by Young_Scott

@Zippedbinders: Yeah, I'm quite familiar with the timeline. ;) You'd be surprised, though; I have one or two friends who I've introduced to MGS and they've not made it to MGS3 yet. Although it's really easy to work out in the context of the storyline, I imagine it'd suck if they were casually browsing here and had that spoiled for them, even if it's mentioned as soon as you start this particular game. I tend to play it safe with spoilers, though.

Peace Walker's a great game and I'm glad more people will be able to check it out now. Its story isn't really as grandiose as the other games in the series, but it makes up for it with some pretty great gameplay.

Exactly. Like you said.

Oh wow. Skyrim? Uhhh... yeah, after this is finished.

Posted by BlazeHedgehog

It's a shame they aren't doing anything to these textures.

Posted by tourgen

I only played the first on the playstation so I'm pretty happy about the HD collection coming out this year. I keep hearing that twin snakes on the gcube was the better version tho. I need to try it some day.

Posted by Hameyadea

Why the HUD is still sideways of the HOME CONSOLE!??!?!

Posted by ninjakittyboxrz

Naked Snake is using the CIA prototype called the "sky-hook" to aerial-extract out his recruits. AWESOME how Dark Knight teaches you the small things in life!!

I concur with your outrage. Also Naked Snake > Solid Snake.

So glad I'll be able to play this now; wouldn't of been able to without this port otherwise and I'm always eager to play around some more during Big Boss' era.

You did actually play the game, right? MGS: Peace Walker has the best MGS controls to date. So the only thing I can infer from your comment is either you didn't play it at all, or you did the tutorial with one of the other configurations besides the default and thought it was the standard.

Posted by AndrewB

@ghostofst4rm4n: I guess I just fail at my brain translating face buttons to camera controls (the only control method I found even remotely playable). I've never heard anything but complaints about it from other places, too, so I didn't think I was alone on that.

As someone who's kind of always wanted to get into Metal Gear, bit never did, are the games included in this thing enough for MGS4 to make sense? It's still on my to-play list like four years later.

Posted by Sammo21

Naked Snake much? Apparently not lol

Posted by Underwhelmed

@walkingcarpet: In all honesty, you can do fine skipping MGS4. The HD package has both 3 and peace walker which are really the best games in the series. Solid 2 is a good game, but it gets goofy by the end, though not a tenth as goofy as number 4 is by the climax.

Posted by kalmis

Finally get to play this game

Posted by evilrazer

Not interested. Finished Peace Walker on PSP, not ready to play it again yet.

Posted by zipperface

Doesn't look bad, but definitely not HD. What's with the rash of so-called HD re-releases as of late?

Posted by thechronodarkness

Big boss is called snake at countless points. Though, the only misleading thing is...hes not exactly, young. Probably at least 50, or at least close. Considering his age in the first two metal gear msx games

Bull. MGS4 is the best "game" of the series by far, especially from a gameplay perspective. MGS3 had a cool story but had kinda bad gameplay throughout. I liked 2 a lot when I played it four or five years ago.

P.S. They're all incredibly goofy after a while.

Thats the one thing thats aways bugged me about MGS. Gradually they have become crazier and crazier. Fatman i'm looking at you!! Good to hear they've toned it down some with this one. Definitely going to pick this up.

snake,Snake,SNAAAAAKE!!...

Same. camera controls should have more than 4 damn directions. Couldn't play for that exact reason.

It's ok for me to be excited for this collection though I don't understand most of the universe, right?

Posted by Parsnip

They didn't do anything to the textures it seems. Grungy looking for sure.

Posted by Klaimore

Maybe it's the quality of our HD but this looks just like it did on the psp.

Young Solid Snake =/= Big Boss

Delayed in Europe? Fuckers. Anyways, people will be surprised how much stuff is packed into this game.

Well, I did listen to the spoilercast that they did when the game first came out and I could get behind some japanese goofy. It's what made me actually want to get into Metal Gear in general. It sounds so crazy and goofy and that's what's appealing to me. Thanks for the suggestions, either way.

Posted by Underwhelmed

@MormonWarrior: Are you for real? MGS 4's story plays out like a terrible fan-fic version of a Metal Gear game (and that is saying something since again, the series is not known for its realism) A ninja stopping an entire ship with his bare hands? Super model elite special forces that all default to an insultingly misogynistic second boss-fight after being defeated once?. Your taste is either suspect or else you watch way too much Anime.

From a gameplay perspective you could make the argument that it was better I suppose. I didn't like the whole buying weapons constantly and having near limitless ammunition in a series that up to that point spent a fair amount of time forcing you to scrounge for gear. But story wise? You need to read more.
